Come relax in this great three bedroom, one and a half baths, classic style cottage located on a peaceful street just one house off Gulf Drive. You don’t even have to cross a road to walk to the beach.  What could be nicer?

This property was once a concert venue called “The Sandbox”  and comes complete with a unique backyard, pool and your own private tiki, as well as a sunset viewing deck!


The master bedroom has its own TV,  brand new king bed (12/2017) and a private half bath attached. The second bedroom sleeps two in twin beds and the living room sleeps two in a very comfy pull-out sleeper-sofa.  All the sheets are at least 400 thread count for wonderful nights of sleep.  There is a updated full bath with a step-in tiled shower.

The kitchen includes a refrigerator (with ice maker, of course), garbage disposal, microwave, dishwasher, new stove and new granite counter tops.  There is also a washer and dryer.

The living room is brightly decorated with comfortable seating and a large, flat-screen TV.  There is WiFi and Cable.

Step into the backyard for a tropical oasis that includes a salt water pool, tiki bar, and a small stage which is now the hammock landing pad! The fridge in the tiki bar keeps your beverages cold as you cool off in the pool or sit on the bar stools and listen to music through outdoor Bose speakers. Catch glimpses of the Gulf and hear the waves at night. You’re just a short walk to the beach!  There is a cart to carry your stuff to the beach because after all, you’re on vacation.


The Sandbox is within walking distance of a shopping center that includes Walgreen’s, a beach shop, a dollar store, a breakfast restaurant. a German restaurant, a Subway, a cupcake shop, a hardware store,  an ice cream shop, a Dunkin Doughnuts, and a Chinese carryout!

Walk the beach a couple blocks north to the Manatee Public beach for live music, outdoor dining and tiki service as well as Restrooms and shopping, and Edy’s ice cream. Friday Night Drum circle and Saturday morning , all you can eat Pancake breakfast.

Want more variety? Take the free trolley that runs up and down the Island every 20 minutes.

Come enjoy a relaxed and wonderful vacation at “The Sandbox.”

We look forward to seeing you on the Florida Gulf Coast.
